How 316 Insulation Sprays Foam Insulation

Auburn, WA is a premium product that homeowners choose because it insulates better than fiberglass batt insulation and also helps save on energy bills. It seals the home’s building envelope, so air can’t leak in or out, which is a major cause of high energy bills year-round.

Maximizing Energy Efficiency with Spray Foam Insulation

Homeowners may be surprised to learn that many spray foam products use chemicals that have a very high global warming potential (GWP). The blowing agents used in spray foam insulation are 3,400 times more potent than carbon dioxide on a per-kilo basis.

In an effort to reduce the environmental impact of these chemicals, 316 Insulation uses only spray foam insulation that contains low GWP blowing agents. This does add to the cost of the insulation, but will make it more eco-friendly.

A professional technician will prepare the area to be sprayed and will then run a hose from a large, truck-mounted rig that houses the spray foam technology. The tech inside the rig ensures that the chemicals are mixed perfectly and sprayed at the proper temperature.

The foam will be sprayed onto the attic or roof of the home, crawl spaces and overhangs, basement rim joist or knee walls in new construction and pole barns. It is also an excellent choice for insulating foundations. Closed-cell foam is a good option for a basement, as it creates an effective air and vapor barrier in one. This can also prevent moisture problems and rot in the basement.
